    Here is a little pointer -

    I got a pullup with one plate a few weeks ago. I noticed since I started doing pullups and dips my bench went up.

    My next goal is two plates, although I am not sure its possible for a female.

    Bench is whole body. If done power lifter style it pulls your Lats and back into the picture as well for bench. Your goal is to push your back through the bench. Of course the weights move and not your back. Dips for tris, and pull ups for Lats and your bench will go up.

    Or lean forward quite a bit on Dips and turn it into a lower chest exercise. Can really pack on weights then. I was doing 3 sets of 8 reps @BW(180lbs)+2 plates. My goal is to get back up to my old workout.

    About to start p90x, last time on pull up day I usually knocked out 120-130 non-weighted pull ups by the end of it. Of course I am 30lbs heavier now. We will see how many I can do.

    ISTP girls are so badass.

    I can't do pull ups with plates, hope to get there some day.
